We are refining route options for HumeLink. When selecting a route, we are committed to discussing route options with landowners and communities. Where possible, we will plan new transmission lines on public land or adjacent to existing easements.
Feedback from landowners and communities helps us identify environmental impacts, integrate local knowledge about land uses into our planning, and improve design.
Following meetings in recent months with landowners and other stakeholders, TransGrid will seek to meet again with landowners in early 2021 to discuss progress on route options.
To improve consultation with landowners and communities, the former Commissioner for NSW Fair Trading, Rod Stowe, has agreed to advise TransGrid on our engagement practices and processes. As an advocate for landowners and communities, within our business, Mr Stowe’s advice will ensure we uphold best practice engagement and always treat everyone fairly and with respect.
To share your local knowledge, you can put your comments on the interactive project map at www.humelink.mycommunityengine.com
